There is also Airconditioning in all 4 bedrooms and 2 Ecosmart bio-ethanol fire places in the house. Kitchen, lounge, dining room, bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs all as underfloor heating.

Part of our house exchange will be that you get 1 nanny/cleaner every day from 8-5pm, (that can clean, do laundry & look after kids)
We have 3 trustworthy nannies that have worked for us for 5-8 years and they all rotate, so we can highly recommend them. They will be paid by us, so you don't have to pay them.
We also have a 2014 Landrover discovery and a Landrover defender that you can use..
My brother will also collect you at Cape Town airport and bring you to our house

Who we are

  1. We are Elise & Scott Wightman, a married couple in our mid 30- early 40 ties, and have 4 well disciplined little kids. Isabel 9, Grace 6,Alexander 5 & Jordan 4..Elise is South African and Scott Australian. We met in Europe. Scott is an Engineer/Project manager for large motor yacht build projects in Europe, Turkey, Italy & New Zealand...and travels a lot for work, while Elise is a full-time mum & looks after the kiddies. We use to have a house in Brisbane and sold it 3 years ago and currently looking to buy back in the near future.

    We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds like a great way to travel & not have huge expenses, because with a family of 6, it can get quite expensive.
